None of the superdata links works for me though. It doesn't work when I google superdata and go to their home page (page doesn't load) :-3
The VGC article about this said digital console sales grew to 4$ Billion though, so I found my answer.

 

Hmm strange.

The links load for me but takes a while though.

 


It just tells me the website isn't available. Oh well.

Those are all 3rd party console sales. Are they counting sales directly from console stores? I didn't read the article yet

 


Pretty sure its PSN/XBL/Eshop combined -  3rd party titles make up the bulk of profit from digital sales. Specifically due to the Microtransactions/DLC that come with them as well (also the benefit of being Multiplatform).

 


So MS and Sony are giving out numbers on their digital side? Only to these guys? 



Teeqoz I'm getting the same thing

No idea - doesnt show the full data of the percentages they mentioned - only the top 10 but I'm assuming first party titles are also included though.

Edit: Oh it seems like its possible to get more info but its only for subscribers >.>....

 

Strange that the site doesnt load for you guys - takes me at least 15-20 seconds for it to load though - poor design I guess ;p

I'm just hoping that consoles don't end up becoming digital only anytime soon, I'd probably lose some interest in gaming if that happens.

You'd probably get over it. The experience is 99% the same.

 

The Value is not the same



 

 

i guess this is the last nail in the coffin when it comes to the claim that halo performed miracles digitally, and that "50% attatch rate!" nonesense. 

 

 

Also clash of clans and league of legends doing that much is just insane... fucking insane. 



GTAV still make more on console than PC without physical sales.

I knew someone is going to bring this up and not surprise by who. Did you also read BasilZero other comment where Microtransaction/DLC also count towards these revenue? It also helps that all of these games are multiplatform and not a single exclusive is on this list.

So, which brought in more revenue? Mobile or PC?

So what is the digital market on console worth now?

Both answers can be found in the superdata source: https://www.superdataresearch.com/blog/us-digital-games-market/

"The largest category in terms of dollar sales was mobile, earning $25.8 billion" and "Sales of digital console games showed the biggest jump and were up 34%, despite being one of the smaller categories at $4B annually."

So mobile revenue > PC revenue >>> console revenue (without retail sales).
